It makes a colourful 'splash' in this field of white, Danny, captured in excellent detail and so well exposed.

A high-key pheasant...
He appears to be suffering from cold feet.

Yes it does make a suitable backdrop and emphasises the colours, tones and detail in the bird.

Great high-key image. Nicely exposed. Well captured.

Your descriptive sentence is perfect, as is the photograph.
A white dinner plate of roast potatoes, sprouts and parsnips is another pleasing backdrop for pheasant. Though Moira says you have to pluck the pheasant first.

White snow field make a great background for this colourful bird

Tried pheasant once. Why would anyone want to eat rotting game!! Tongue Nicely composed and captured on the white blanket, Danny.

The plain backdrop will further confuse this bird who dithers and runs back while crossing the road. The snow will have him casting feathers in profusion.

You are right - the snow is a perfect back-drop, and the cast shadow under him sets him nicely in place.

Hopefully he will bring his girlfriend for a visit when spring comes.

I guess the snow reflects the light up and makes him look all the brighter! Great shot, Danny!
